On-site Canopy and On-Board Optical Window Restoration Before After



RCF Incorporated performs or trains technicians in on-board canopy restoration. An unusable canopy can be restored back to serviceable conditions. The process is a significant cost-savings investment.

The cost savings are significant. Replacing a canopy can cost over $252,000. Replacing the transparency can cost over $114,000 and 400 man hours with two technicians.

Full Canopy Restoration by RCF cost approximately $20,000 including parts and labor. The total cost of restoration is only a fraction of other replacement options.

RCF Incorporated also performs optical surface restoration in accordance with FAA Certification. Our in-place aircraft window repair, techniques, guidelines and process produces quality restorations. Optical surface restoration is performed on site, averaging thirty minutes per window.
Each phase of the restoration is performed on site including initial damage analysis, surface preparation, and progressive polishing. Side windows, pilot-escape windows, emergency exit windows, landing lights, and wingtip lights can all be restored through this process. Through joint efforts with business partners we can also resurface fleets of windows with *high-precision automation.
